This is a great look for someone who wants a dramatic cut crease but without the excessive use of heavy colors. I started out by placing a piece of tape to create a hard edge; then I used Mabelline's Color Tattoo in Too Cool as a light wash over the lid and up to the crease. I then used the lightest color in my Avon True Color eyeshadow Quad which was the purple haze quad (Q708) and used the lightest color (lilac) as a highlight from the top of the crease up to the brow with a blending brush. I then used there pinkish purple color on the lid. I then took my avon glimmerstick eye liner in saturn grey and drew a line on the crease. I then blended it up and out using a smudge brush. After that I used the black ice color from my Purple haze quad ( Black ice is a metalic grey not a metalic silver or glitter black) and placed that where the saturn grey was with the smudge brush. Then I blended the black ice up and out into the lilac highlight. Then I used maybelline's blackest black gel eyeliner on the top lid and created a cat eye. On the lower lashline I used the eggplant color and went on the waterline and under the outer half of the eye to connect it to the black. I removed the tape and then lightly defined her brow with another glimmerstick (this one was in copper which is a warm medium brown) I then did a fairly standard foundation routine ( foundation and powder). For the Lips I went with a Plummy Red, darker reds, amythyst pinks and even purples go down rather well with this look too. I'd stay away from real red shades with this look
